Dec 29, 2016     Annual Review 2016

As always, the contemplative time "between the years" invites us to look back at the ending year. The year began with Susan's dream. Susan had the opportunity to take part in the international tournament series in Wellington, Florida by the invitation of Leslie and John Malone. For two months, Susan and Harmony's Fiorano, Harmony's Don Nobless and Samson have been very successful in several national and international dressage competitions. In January, Libertad completed an outstanding performance test.


He won his 50-day test with 9.03, which was the best result this year of all dressage stallions. At home the beginning of the year was marked by the stallion shows. At the PB show in Verden, the community show in Vechta and our most important regional show on the Dobrock, our breeders were able to make a good overall picture of our stallions and their heredity. In the end, it was traditionally a breeders' breakthrough at Wettringen to our partner station Mathieu Beckmann. Of course, we were again supported by our fanbus. We would like to sincerely thank Mathieu and his team for the excellent, friendly cooperation in many areas. The 2016, again free of complications, we have the chance to win our team, especially Rene Janzen and Sarah Mojen. In her first year, Sarah has proved herself as a station manager, a perfect addition to our team.


The foal round trip organized in May by the main horse breeding association Hadeln took place on our farm, by a sociable gathering of the breeders, a wonderful conclusion. The foal show held in June was extremely well attended and brought good sales. The mares were very satisfying for us. After consistently very good performance tests, we were able to place three St.Pr. mares with Laeticia, Sangria and Que Belle, of which Que Belle became the best mare of the show. Also on the Friedrich Jahnke and the Herwart v.d.Decken show our mares were highly ranked. 







Ribbons in Florida



The fourth edition of VNDE, our sales days in Switzerland, took place for the first time at the farm of Barbara von Grebel in Grüningen. Here we were very warmly welcomed and we could gain many new friends. Many horses from Hemmoor and Wettringen found happy new owners.

Our team with Lena, Bronwyn and Jamie was able to achieve a variety of victories and placements from riding horse tests to advaned S dressage competitions. Lena rode her first Bundeschampionats finals and scraped with a bit bad luck just a medal.

In the course of the year, some changes in the stallion's stock have occurred. Dancing World, after having won his first advanced S-dressage under Susan only seven years old, was sold to Bavaria in very good hands. Lemony's Nicket was given to the promotional hands of Michael Klimke, who also belongs to the team of Harmony Sporthorses, Lemmy's owners. This pair is highly successful from the stand and could immediately win several advavnced S-dressage competitions. Scuderia will also focus on his sports career in the future. He is already advanced S-successful.












July 27, 2016  was a very sad day for us. Our Davignon died at the age of 28 years. To the last he was top-fit ​​and enjoyed his daily course in "his" paddock. Davignon was a symbol of the rise of our station. He leaves more than 100 placed horses on advanced level. But in times of hard times, it is always important to look ahead. And with Daytona and Don Allegro the next generation of hopeful dressage stallions for our breeders is ready.

The Festhallen Turnier in Frankfurt was the year end and the sporting highlight. In the Louidor prize final for Germany's best Grand Prix junior, Susan was able to defend her podium spot already won last year with Harmony's Fiorano. With an excellent third place with almost 73%, Harmony's Don Nobless once again drew you attention.

On Dec 28, 2016  Susan will again travel to Wellington-Florida with four horses to advertise for our stable and horses of our region.

We would like to thank our employees for the great work they have done and for all our breeders and customers for their trust in us and wish you a happy 2017 with happiness and health in the house and stable.

July 28, 2016     Unforgetable







July 27, 2016     R.I.P.  Davignon

Today is a sad day for the Pape stud. Our Davignon is no longer alive. In the morning he went satisfied in "his" pasture walk and no one suspected that it would be the last time. Actually a great end for such a special horse and still strikes us all hard in the family and the staff of the farewell. The name Davignon is closely linked to the rise of our stud and the name of Günter Pape, who discovered him. Davignon leaves more than 100 sport horses placed on advanced level and more than 30 licensed sons. He stood at stud up to the age of 23 and was 28 years old.

An incredible show season in Florida has come to an end, taking home some unbelievable impressions. The horses were topfit and showed in all tests at their best. I thank Michael Klimke and Scott Hassler who helped me at every test during the warm up and I thank Susanne Hassler, Susanne van Baalen and Sabrina Gurtze, who organized everything behind the scenery. My special thanks ofcourse go to Leslie and John Malone who made my memorable stay possible.

February 26, 2016     Libertad clearly wins performance test 

In an impressive way and with the outstanding score of 9.03, Libertad has left in the first 50-day test all competitors far behind. He achieved for his Interieuer, character / temperament, willingness to perform, canter and of both test riders the ideal score of 10.0. Coupled with the fantastic impression of his first foals, 

we may look for a lot more from him in the coming years. 


January 17, 2016     Wellington 

Super start for Susan at the first tournament weekend.
A perfect start was Susan with her "boys" at the first measurement with the international competitors in Wellington, Florida - USA. She was placed in all strong field tests. Particularly pleasing was a victory in St. George with Samson, the victory in the Inter I the CDI Tour with Don Nobless with nearly 74% and the fourth place in the Grand Prix Special with Fiorano. This may go on like this!
